Grants to New York public and private nonprofit organizations, businesses, and community groups in eligible locations for community and economic development activities. Funding is intended to benefit low- and moderate-income residents, eliminate and prevent slums and blight, and help meet other community development needs. Eligible activities should benefit residents of the City of Dunkirk.

The City of Dunkirk is a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) entitlement community grantee.  This grant is provided to carry out a wide range of community development activities directed toward revitalizing neighborhoods, economic development, and providing improved community facilities and services.

Entitlement communities are required to develop their own programs and funding priorities. However, the City of Dunkirk is required to give maximum feasible priority to activities which benefit low- and moderate-income persons. As a grantee, the City may also carry out activities which aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight. Additionally, grantees may fund activities when the grantee certifies that the activities meet other community development needs having a particular urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the health or welfare of the community where other financial resources are not available to meet such needs.

The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program is a flexible program that provides communities with resources to address a wide range of unique community development needs. CDBG is geared to benefit low-to moderate-income people, areas and jobs.  Programs that are always funded include: Economic Development, Housing Rehabilitation, Infrastructure and services such as Youth Services, Senior Services and Employment training.  

70% of CDBG allocations must be used on low-to moderate-income people, ares and jobs.  Each Project and activity must meet a National Objective, which is to HUD is CDBG’s accomplishment.
